We invite all interested vendors to join our Multi-Vendor MPLS SDN Interoperability Test Event in collaboration with the MPLS SD & AI Net World CongressThe Congress will be held from April 5-7, 2022 .  as in-person event in Paris. The EANTC Hot Staging will take place from February 14-25, 2022 in Berlin, Germany. 

EANTC's showcase is a well established event beneficial for small and large vendors alike. EANTC as an independent party creates an ecosystem to conduct testing in the most advanced application scenarios addressing service providers’ needs. We exhibit a tangible, lab-validated network showcasing mature as well as the latest advances in different technology areas. EANTC focuses on 5G transport (slicing, edge computing), data center networking for cloud environment, integration of multiple transport domains (WAN, data center), microwave and packet network synchronization.

Test Bed Approach

Following our successful mixed on-site and remote SDN interoperability test events in 2020, and our series of fully remote interop and performance test programs in Network Function Virtualization (NFV) since 2016, we decided to take a step for SDN interop testing we had planned for a long time.  Covid-19 changed the environment, encouraging us to go this way for multi-vendor testing as well:

  • Remote testing
  • Full remote control with VPNs, jump servers, videoconferencing sessions
  • Virtualized platforms provided by EANTC
  • Distributed (time shifted) testing 

Benefits of Participation

EANTC’s interoperability reports are respected by service providers, raising customer awareness of the state of implementation for innovative network concepts. We describe use case scenarios and design blueprints which service providers can adopt for their network designs. Our reports have helped to kick off network innovation projects, to fulfill RFP requirements with regards to interoperability, and to avoid individual PoCs covering similar technical questions. The initiative provides a unique opportunity to test and troubleshoot interoperability with third-party vendors in a friendly pre-production environment. Participating in the test event improves quality and reduces implementation time in customer projects.

Marketing and Publication

The results of this interoperability event will be marketed:

  • White Paper - extensive, detailed description of all use cases, test setups and results (positive results by vendor/solution name, negative results anonymously as "state of the industry"). It will be available free of charge on our website and will be distributed on the first day of the conference in Paris
  • Live demos - live demonstrations by participants and EANTC representatives at EANTC showcase booth in Paris
  • Press releases - by EANTC and participating vendors
  • Social Media (LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube)
  • EANTC Newsletter

We hope that this initiative is beneficial to you and look forward to your participation!
